We ate silverbeet and butter beans from the plot last night, and zucchini flowers (stir-fried with garlic and pepper) with a cucumber salad tonight. I’m making more friends down at CERES. I’m not doing much sewing, but that’s OK for the moment. I’m marrying a smart, strong and gentle man who thinks it’s adorable, if weird, that I get excited over green beans and understands when I spend money on tomato crushing devices. My folks (good people, if oddball) met his folks (good people, if oddball) today and it all went smoothly. The Yum Cha didn’t hurt. I share a great dog, have a good job, and although I have a certain degree of what-am-I-going-to-do-about-the-rest-of-my-life going on right now, I can handle it.
It’s the first time in living memory I’ve started the year with a resolution that runs like this: how about I keep doing what I’m doing? But with less worrying and more enjoying. That’s the hard part!
